Colonies of the stream-inhabiting cyanobacterium Nostoc parmelioides Kutzing often contain a single endosymbiotic dipteran larva Cricotopus nostocicola (Wirth), which induces a morphological change from small, spherical colonies to larger, ear-shaped colonies. At a current velocity of 0 cm · s−1, whole colonies containing the midge showed overall rates of 14CO2 uptake and nitrogenase activity that were higher than those when the midge was absent (sphere-shaped colonies). Spherical colonies… CONTINUE READING
